NEWLY qualified nurses are being invited to a recruitment event being held at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital.

The event, on Saturday, October 5, is an opportunity for nurses to find out what it is like to work at the hospital, with the chance to take a tour and meet the teams in the areas they would like to work. Nurses will be on hand to talk to applicants about support and mentorship and jobs will be offered on the day.

Sue Davies, directorate matron for surgery, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming newly qualified nurses to meet #TeamRBCH and find out what it’s like to work here. The day aims to give them a true taste of what it’s like to work at our trust.

“Current vacancies include positions in acute medicine (the Emergency Department and Acute Medical Unit), stroke services, older person’s medicine, surgical speciality wards, emergency surgery, theatres and anaesthetics and cancer care.

Those wishing to attend the day should sign up at
